Cocaine(COC) Drug Urine Test is a simple one step testfor the rapid, qualitative detection of COC and primarily benzoylecgonine as metabolites in urine. The cutoff of the test is 300 ng/ml of COC. It is the same as the SAMHSA recommended cutoff.
The COC cocaine test provides only a preliminary analytical result. A more specific alternative chemical method must be used in order to obtain a confirmed analytical result. Gas chromatography, mass spectrometry (GC/MS) is the preferred method.
Clinical consideration and professional judgment should be applied to any drug of abuse test result, particularly when preliminary positive results are used.
EXPLANATION OF THE TEST:
Cocaine, derived from the leaves of the coca plant, is a potent central nervous system stimulant and a local anesthetic. Cocaine induces euphoria, confidence and a sense of increased energy in the user
